The property is entered via a covered entrance into the entrance vestibule. A good sized area with original wooden door with inset original coloured glazing into the entrance hallway. The colour scheme is immediately apparent and is found throughout the home with modern carpeting, smooth plaster walls and decorative wall papering, making the most of the high ceilings with original coving and dado rails found throughout. From the hallway, a beautifully polished original newel post with stairs leading up to the first floor, doors off to the ground floor accommodation and understairs storage.

The bay fronted living room is awash with light from a large window to the front affording glimpses of the banks of the River Tamar and South East Cornwall. This well-presented room offers a focal decorative fireplace with modern wooden surround, inset stylish hearth and grate with polished granite hearth, while the floor is neutrally carpeted with one feature wallpapered wall.

The dining room is found adjacent with access from the hallway with continuation of neutral carpeting and one feature wallpapered wall. Stylishly presented, PVCu double glazed French doors open out onto the patio to the rear of the property.

The kitchen has been extended over time to provide a most useable space with a matching range of base and wall mounted units, space for fridge/freezer and white goods, space for Range cooker, extractor fan over and tiled splashback and roll edge worksurface over. An extended area to the rear benefits from a Velux roof light and offers a continuation of the base units and worksurface over, stainless steel sink with mixer tap over, space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher, wall mounted boiler, windows to two sides overlooking the rear garden and a PVCu double glazed door which opens out onto the rear patio.

On the first floor an original coloured glazed window creates a real focal point to the landing which provides light into the much-improved family bathroom comprising; pedestal wash hand basin, free standing modern wide wash hand basin, panelled bath with mains feed shower and shower screen. The room is beautifully presented with large marble effect shimmering floor tiling, modern wall tiling to all sides with two obscurely glazed PVCu double glazed windows overlooking the rear elevation. The bedrooms are decorated to the highest order with two double bedrooms facing the rear and front offering ample space with the continuation of neutral carpeting and feature wall. The master bedroom to the front also benefits from a bay window with water views towards South East Cornwall. The third bedroom is a good-sized single facing the front elevation and is currently used as a large walk in dressing room benefiting from neutral decoration, neutral carpeting and PVCu double glazed window to the front elevation.

The home benefits from gas central heating and PVCu double glazing throughout. To the rear the garden is beautifully designed with a private patio laid area for entertaining with half walling and steps leading up to a further area with path, two areas laid to lawn and mature shrubs and planting in raised beds.

The garage and workshop are accessed from a door in the rear garden and the rear service lane via a roll up door. The workshop is through the garage to the side and provides good space for work benches, tools and storage. Both with power and light connected.

There are extension possibilities into the roof space to create additional accommodation subject to permissions.

In summary the property offers a stylish, elegant, mid-terraced period home with the space and high ceilings that you would expect from a property of this age. Couple this with the attention to detail, finishing and taste of the current owners the property is an excellent example of this style of home and demands to be fully viewed to be appreciated.

HIGHER ST BUDEAUX The name St Budeaux comes from Saint Budoc, the Bishop of Dol (Brittany). Around 480, Budoc is said to have founded a settlement and built a small church. The church eventually gave way to a permanent stone one, dedicated to Saint Budoc, which was erected shortly before the Norman conquest of England.

The village is documented in William the Conqueror's Domesday Book of 1086. The modern name, St Budeaux, is itself a Frenchified "elegant" form. St Budeaux became a separate parish in 1482 by the decision of the Bishop of Exeter. During the early Tudor period demand grew for a larger church, which was completed in 1563. The church was described in 1804 as "a simple edifice, and, though devoid of architectural embellishment, possesses much picturesque beauty." On 4 July 1569, Sir Francis Drake married local woman Mary Newman (Lady Drake was buried there in 1582).

Today, St Budeaux includes a Catholic church, a Methodist church, a Baptist church and two Church of England churches. It also has a public library, three pubs, four primary schools and two railway stations, although the village does not have its own secondary school. Most of the main shops including a KFC outlet, are situated in St Budeaux Square which is adjacent to Wolseley Road. Most children of secondary school age in the area attend Marine Academy Plymouth in the nearby ward of King's Tamerton or bus to one of the residual grammar schools or one of the many other community colleges.

While the official boundaries of the ward itself cover approximately 5 square kilometers, St Budeaux is often considered to include the neighbouring wards of Weston Mill, Barne Barton and Kings Tamerton. Property in the area varies in age, with examples from the Victorian/Edwardian period, right up to examples from the 1990’s. The A38 Devon Expressway, to the north of the suburb, delivers easy access, in and out of the City of Plymouth
